The times for the Ruffin Reading Bowl competition will be the same as last year. Elementary school (grades 4-5) students will compete on Saturday, January 18, from 9 AM-12 PM, and middle (grades 6-8) and high schools (grades 9-12) will compete on the same day from 2 PM-5 PM.

Helen Ruffin was the media specialist at Skyhaven Elementary School in DeKalb County until her retirement in 1992. To encourage her students to read, she created a competition game based on the Georgia Children’s Book Award nominees. The idea took hold in DeKalb County and grew to a statewide competition in 2003.
